News on Robbie E, Alissa Flash, Abismo Negro, and more
– From Devin Cutting: Robbie E will be part of the VCW event at the Municipal Building in Newport, Vermont on October 22nd, 2011. Go to http://belltimeclub.com for more info
– From Kris Zellner: AAA announced weeks ago that they were looking to put someone new in the Abismo Negro gimmick since it’s been over 2 1/2 years since Andres Palomeque who was the original one died and they are going to have what they call the first reality show in lucha libre (which is now false since A&E Mexico is airing El Luchador involving EMLL guys in October) to cast the character. Yesterday the names were leaked out on who will be competing for the role and they are the following: Abadon/Alas de Plata/Argos/Black Fire/Black Mamba/Garra de Aguila/Kronos/Lasserman/Pirata Morgan Jr./Relampago/Ultimo Vampiro. Needless to say there is quite the backlash online from fans regarding this saying this is disrespectful to the memory of the original Abismo Negro.
– Former TNA knockout Melissa Anderson (Alissa Flash) is booked for the 10/30 FULL (Fusion Universal De Lucha Libre) Arena Monterrey show.
– From Jeff Sheridan: It’s wrestling fever – Memorabilia still big draw for loyal fans
